John Daly latest injury scare for Open

An injury scare over John Daly could prevent a return to the scene of his famous 1995 Open win. Allsport.

John Daly withdrew from the Western Open on Wednesday morning because of an inflamed hip, one day before the tournament was scheduled to begin.

Daly never made it to Chicago. His agent, John Mascatello, called the PGA Tour's office in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., Wednesday morning and left a message that the two-time major champion was withdrawing to overcome inflammation in his right hip.

There was no immediate word on whether the injury would keep Daly out of theOpen, which begins July 20 at St. Andrews -- the site of his 1995 victory.

Daly withdrew from last month's U.S. Open after shooting a 14 on the par-5 18th hole and finishing with a 12-over 83 in the first round. He hit one shot into a back yard on the 18th and dumped three more in the Pacific Ocean.

Daly played the next two weeks at the St. Jude Classic and the Greater Hartford Open, but didn't make the cut in either tournament.
